Great post! I think Kawasaki does an excellent job getting
to the point of what mission and vision statements are
really trying to capture. The power of having a statement
that every member of the team can not only identify with,
and be inspired by, but can remember!

It is great that you are sharing this video with others
here. You are truly making a difference in the world. Keep
doing what you are doing!

To your magnificence!

I like the idea of writing a mantra in stead of a mission
statement - becuase it is so short it has to come from the
heart and opening into the resonance with the felt sense
